“Slow Zone,” With Signs and Speed Bumps, Coming to Brooklyn Heights

As the Eagle reports (and as readers JoraleMan and RJG remind us, the City’s Department of Transportation is beginning to implement the “slow zone” for Brooklyn Heights that we reported in 2013 would be in place by next year. The map shows the locations of the “20 MPH Slow Zone” signs and speed bumps to be installed. The DOT has provided a detailed plan, with illustrations.

    Saw a car maneuver into the bicycle lane to avoid the bump, hump, lump. Bikers, be wary.

    Just saw the Amy Winehouse documentary at the Main Library (Dweck Center). Harrowing, but well worth it.

    You should make an effort to see it.

    Speed bumps, at least in NYC are the great sign of a more desirable neighborhood or a school or frequent play area, surrounded by a usually higher social problem(s) area with darlings who insist on nailing it in (and to) the more desirable area or special safety concerns area.

    It’s sad that people, even if they are less fortunate, don’t respect their more fortunate neighbors…..so now I’m going to need far more frequent alignments/new shocks and other front end work because no one is effectively out there issuing in-motion violations/effective deturring the irresponsible types from surrounding areas. That’s nice…

    And as to the last comment; bikers are the single largest danger right now. The number of UNREPORTED accidents/injuries due to bikes, given all responsible sources, is huge and if the city does a poor job investigating car accidents, they want to do little or nothing when some “low carbon footprint” type hits a child or elderly person.

    Quick, everybody go to you tube and put on “Slow Down Buddy” by the great Ferlin Husky (1955) the greatest traffic safety message EVER!….

    Need many more over the full length of Hicks Street, which is used as a BQE trench alternate every rush hour. Especially need one on Hicks between Cranberry and Middagh, immediately before PS 8. This is critical.
